Overview

Since the dawn of time, there have been shocking tales of adultery, corruption, murder and self-destruction.

From Princess Diana to Jeffrey Archer, Oscar Wilde to Queen Caroline and Frank Sinatra to O.J. Simpon, public faces have been shamed by events they hoped would stay private forever.

This fascinating account of the most jaw-dropping, gossip-inducing scandals of all time brings you all the sordid details of events on both sides of the Atlantic. Political spin-doctors are seen spinning out of control, Hollywood celebrities are unmasked for their sexual shenanigans and seemingly squeaky clean religious leaders are exposed in this no-holds-barred collection of scandals and intrigue.

With up-to-date coverage of the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, paedophile priests, cash-for-honours and Michael Jackson scandals, this is a juicy read packed full of private stories of public shame.
